The Brunch café has not only the best breakfast around, but the service and the speed of your breakfast coming out is outstanding.

From the dishes to the service to the atmosphere, we have never been disappointed in Brunch Cafe. This has easily made its way to the top of our family's list of favorite restaurants. Their French toasts are phenomenal--from the signature to the red velvet and so on. So are the omelettes and bacon. Also the coffee and tea are incredibly... More

I have eaten at the Brunch Cafe often and always had an amazingly delicious meal. The servers are delightful and knowledgeable about the ingredients. Get there early on the weekends as they are very busy.

Went with a huge group--14 people--during a family reunion. Staff was outstanding and super-accommodating. Everyone of us were delighted with our meals--try the apple ham and Gouda melt and the ham and cheese crepes for sure. A must visit, especially if you are staying nearby -- e.g. At the Hampton Inn.

If you are looking for a change from a traditional menu then this is a must visit eatery. You get ALOT of tasty food at a reasonable price in a nicely decorated restaurant. The only drawback is deciding what to order; the selection is huge. The daily recommendations are shown on plates near the entryway.

We are greeted as family by the host, Patrick! The food is amazing and portions are large enough to split. We love the the omelets and crepes for breakfast, and you simply cannot beat the apple Gouda melt sandwich! Wonderful addition to the McHenry restaurant scene.

Love their stuffed potato pancakes and their banana pancakes! A little pricey but so worth it. Their coffee is showing as well. Gets super busy on weekends so be prepared to wait. If you have a large group they will take reservations.

This place is always crowded for lunch. The food is great and varied. Every day they have one or two specials in addition to a large breakfast & lunch menu. Great place to meet with friends.

A favorite of mine! Every waitress is wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable, and right on top of things. You never feel rushed here! Great place to meet friends, but please don't hold a table for hours if there is a huge waiting line. Yummy food and specials make any wait worthwhile. The manager Patrick, is friendly and wants to make your dining... More
